New Africa Group's story

Salmin M. is in his late fifties and is married with six children. He runs a food stall where he sells basic groceries as well as tea. Salmin has been operating this stall between 6 am and 9 pm for 17 years. The stall earns him a good monthly profit.

This will be Salmin's 6th loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. His previous loans were used to repair his stall and to increase his stock, loans which he has successfully repaid. Salmin aims to use this loan to increase his stock in rice and in powdered milk, which he sells with his tea.

Salmin will share this loan with his loan group, New Africa, which totals 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
